Clarets Make Sixth Summer Signing

Josh Cullen Joins Clarets From Anderlecht

Burnley Football Club have this afternoon announced the signing of Republic of Ireland International Josh Cullen on a three-year contract from Anderlecht for an undisclosed fee. Cullen will link back up with former manager Vincent Kompany, after spending the last two seasons at the Belgian club.

The midfielder spent fifteen years at West Ham United, rising through the academy ranks, with loan spells to Bradford City, Bolton Wanderers and Charlton Athletic before making a permanent switch to Anderlecht in 2020. Internationally, the Essex-born central-midfielder has represented Ireland at U19s and U21s level and now has over twenty senior appearances for The Boys in Green.

After joining the Clarets, Cullen said, “I’m really happy. It’s been something that’s been going on for a couple of weeks now so I’m just happy it’s all done and dusted. I’m looking forward to the new season now. The season will come around fast now and I can’t wait to get the shirt on in some of the friendlies and then the main event kicks off in a few weeks.”

Manager Vincent Kompany said, “We are delighted to welcome Josh to the squad, he’s a hard-working and brave player, that will give everything for the team and the Club. Josh is an intelligent midfielder, who is good on the ball and will help improve our side.”
